Paola Zanda – Series #1 – Black and white Once upon a time…
Once upon a time…
The memory of my mother and my grandmother who worked with these fascinating and highly decorated sewing machines inspired this work. Machines that as a child has encouraged me to choose the profession of the dressmaker and creative art teacher.
I used fancy commercial fabrics and solid black or white fabrics.
The sewing machine is made of appliqué by machine.
The deck is made with a variation of the free-hand log cabin.
Everything was quilted by machine with white wire for the upper part and black for the lower part. This is to give structure to the quilt and not to influence the design of the fabrics.
Fancy fabrics and solid white and black fabrics.
Black and white cotton thread.
Old Sewing machine, black and white, fifteen by fifteen, challenge series.
